The tile replaces natural materials, both visual and tactile, and the final value of a top-notch is a presentation of the lifestyle that is representing. In the fierce competition the most convincing wins! Hexagon appears in all sizes and color combinations, textures and patterns, often in metallic design or the antique effects”, said Katica Petkov, director of marketing and development at Keramika Modus, and added that the mosaics are represented in each of the trends, cement occurs in all shades and designs, as the basis of industrial style and all types of stone are still imperative in the design.
